We’ve all heard this phrase time and time again. And usually it refers to an interesting hairstyle. You know, the one that’s neatly combed and brushed when looking straight on but the back of their hair is much longer, much more casual. Also known as a Tennessee top hat or a mullet. There’s nothing wrong it. All hairstyles are different.
This time of year is always, well, madness. And it’s called that for a reason. There are a ton of basketball games of the Big Dance packed into only a few days. Cinderella stories and underdogs going further than they have ever before. Schools of historic pedigree winning expectedly or losing at the last possible moment. No one really knows what it going to happen. Anyone can win on any given day. And that’s what makes it mad. And alliteration is just so darn fun.
Remember when you were a kid and went you on spring break? You had a week away from school and you went to the beach or the mountains or that famous amusement park down in Orlando or in California. Or maybe you were really into sports and had to practice or had ballgames. Or maybe you just stayed home and played with your friends all day, stayed up late watching movies all night, and did it all again the next day.
Parenthood. It really is a pure joy. It changes your life, forever, in the best way possible. The little giggles. The first time they crawl, walk, talk. The first time you hold them. The first time they grasp your finger with all of theirs. And then there are sleepless nights and feedings and all the fears and anxieties of becoming new…GRANDPARENTS!
For some, downsize is a four letter word. And understandably, it can be scary. Trying to decide what to keep, what to get rid of, packing this, packing that, tossing this, giving away items to charity—when some might see something as useless or outdated, you see treasures that remind of you of the past. You see a lifetime of memories. So, when it comes down to downsizing, it can be a looming monster of a task. But it doesn’t have to be.
We know the Big Game is over. The best two teams in the world playing at the highest level put on quite a show. They played their hearts out all year long, preparing their minds and bodies for one final game. 60 minutes of blood, sweat and tears to hoist and kiss that Lombardi Trophy in a moment elation, together as team.
Whether you love or loathe Valentine’s Day, it’s almost here. That’s right. Pink and red covering almost everything in sight. It’s the one day when you tell that special someone how much you care for them. How much you love them. Not that you need just one day to do any of those things, but it’s the one day where everyone is getting showered with love and affection.
We know Groundhog Day. That usually dreary day in on February 2nd. When that cute little groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, emerges from his burrow and “proclaims” to the world if spring is here or if we have another six weeks of winter.
April 15th. Does that date look familiar? If not, it’s the date when taxes across the country are due to the government and IRS. It’s also a date that looms over practically everyone’s heads. And it’s coming faster than you think.
